Digital transformation is driving change across industries - particularly in the diverse new ways to manage information and data. Doing it well is a major challenge for many organisations and to help our customers leverage this change, Colt has built a very strong partner ecosystem.

Colt has a focused strategy for high bandwidth services – so we have a natural partnering opportunity with Data Centre and Cloud providers. Data Centre providers benefit from the best connectivity to complement their portfolio, and Cloud providers have the benefit of this connectivity combined with the leadership Colt brings to the table with our software defined networking (SDN) technology.

We work with our partners to drive technology transformation for our customers. Working with partners such as Amazon Web Services, Celoxica, Ciena, Cisco, Digital Realty, Equinix, Google, IBM, Interxion, Microsoft, Oracle & SAP.
